you see that speech he made on friday. minus the stuff trashing romney. if you are hoping for a signal that now we are going to get toward fiscal sanity, i don't think we got it. >> do you agree with the cbo? what happens if we go over that cliff. >> the real cliff is the tax cliff. they talk about the fiscal cliff because people who like to spend money want to pretend any modest reduction in spend something bad for the economy. the real problem is 500 billion in tax incrosses scheduled for next year. >> alisyn: let's hear what the president had to say yesterday. >> i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but, i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000, aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes.
